In our structure course we were asked to design a catenary model which allows us to work with more different geometries and discover new aspects of a structure. So, the tension model is working in harmony with the gravity created with paperclips. It is a study of different curves and how they intersect, juxtapose or change each other.

Then, the compression model is the upside-down model of the existing model but since my group’s model is rather big, the professor said us to do only a part of it. We made use of hot silicon to provide stability to model in order to relate how two paperclips come together.
